Top TV soap seeks Debt Collection Agency’s expertise
Federal Management, a leading debt collection company, has been given a key role in the iconic Manchester-based TV soap, Coronation Street.
The highly regarded debt collection agency was invited to help with scripts for one of the TV soaps future storylines.
These episodes will be broadcast to millions of viewers in January 2023. A tense debt collection storyline will feature some of the show’s best-known characters.
Coronation Street’s script writing team sought the help of Federal Management to ensure the compelling storyline was as realistic as possible.
The gripping scenes will have viewers glued to their seats.
Script writers and Federal Management have not disclosed which actors will be involved in the scenes airing next year. Marc Curtis-Smith, Managing Director of Federal Management, said: “One of the main characters is going to face an unpaid CCJ debt problem, so we were approached by the producers to check scripts and scenes for authenticity.”
“This included making sure the writers had used accurate industry terminology and that the facts used were legally correct. Many of our staff are regular viewers of the show so we were honoured to be asked for advice on the scripts.”
Federal Management will also serve as key advisers for future script writing projects involving the famous ITV show.
The company has previously been called upon to assist script writers and producers for various television shows.
They have previously advised TV producers on scripts and narratives for various documentaries and TV shows. The award-winning Debt Collection specialist was founded nearly 20 years ago and is highly respected in the business world.
Many high-level and prestigious organisations, as well as small businesses, have used their professional debt collection services in the UK and overseas. Their sister Company, Frontline Collections, is a well-known name in the world of Personal Debt Collection agencies.
This is not the first time a debt collection narrative has taken centre stage in one of Coronation Street’s dramatic episodes. One of the soap’s favourite stars, Mikey North, previously played an ‘illegal’ debt collector.
It is understood that the episodes on which Federal Management has advised will feature CCJ enforcement of a character’s unpaid debts.
